Christa McAuliffe's lost Challenger lessons to be taught on space station

Two educators turned astronauts will film science lessons while aboard the International Space Station that were originally planned to be performed by the late Christa McAuliffe, the first "teacher in space" who died on the space shuttle Challenger in 1986.

Joe Acaba, who taught high school science before joining NASA, announced the plan from aboard the space station during a live video downlink with McAuliffe's alma mater on Friday (Jan. 19).

Challenger Center on Tuesday (Aug. 7) released the first of Christa McAuliffe's "Lost Lessons" filmed aboard the International Space Station:
Challenger Center, in partnership with NASA and STEM on Station, worked to complete several of the lessons Christa McAuliffe had planned for the Challenger STS 51L Teacher in Space mission. Working with Astronauts Ricky Arnold and Joe Acaba, the demonstrations were filmed aboard the International Space Station and corresponding lessons were developed for classrooms.

Lesson topics include chromatography, effervescence, liquids in microgravity and Newton’s law. Several of the lessons were completed as originally planned by Christa and a few were reimagined based on materials available aboard the Space Station.

All times are CT (US)
